Readers Write: Suozzi is a friend the Jewish community can count on

As founding members of the Sid Jacobson JCC, my family is proud of the indispensable community center it has blossomed into over the decades. With comprehensive programs spanning recreation, education, culture, arts, health and social services, SJJCC continues to expand its mission to promote Jewish virtues, values and traditions in a way that embraces and enriches all people in our community.

Tom Suozzi has been a champion of the SJJCC and its mission throughout his distinguished career in public service. His deep commitment and friendship to the center was exemplified by the $850,000 grant he awarded to the SJJCC for critical roof repairs on Dec. 28, 2021 – days before his last term in Congress expired. In other words, Suozzi never stopped fighting and used every minute of his clock to deliver results for the JCC. That is the work of a truly dedicated and experienced representative who knows how to get things done in Washington. 

Suozzi has also stood firmly with SJJCC efforts to support our community in the wake of Oct. 7 and help combat the antisemitism it unleashed. The unprecedented level of anti-Israel hate and trope-laced propaganda that has erupted right here in our state and country – including mass calls to eradicate the Jewish homeland – has created the most alarming atmosphere of antisemitism many of us have ever witnessed. 

That is why we need proven allies in Congress like Suozzi who have the demonstrated record of supporting Israel, combating antisemitism, and showing up for the Jewish community and all others.

More than ever our district deserves a battle-tested, competent representative with the experience, temperament and policy chops to deliver real results. Suozzi is that candidate.
